120905 - Teacher's Day Greetings from My Students

In the childhood my mother taught me the alphabets like a,b,c ; अ, आ, इ etc which had me confident in reading in and writing. But my Chachu had taught me the alphabets of LIFE, which is helping me in leading my LIFE by Living and Learning In Full Enjoyment. The lessons which u have taught us through ur experiences are really something which I cannot forget through out my life. U are an inspiration for me Chachu.. I have learnt the phrase "Acharya Devo Bhava" many times, but never understood it completely, i.e., why is a teacher being considered as equal to God, but after meeting you, I understood it. I thank God for giving such a great Guru like You.. Thank You So much for everything Chachu..

Happy Teacher's Day Chachu...

120716 - Sai - Nellore / Hyderabad / MS from Sweden

Dear Guruji,

                      I apologise for the late reply as my health was upset yesterday I could not write to you sir. Iam writing this from the bottom of my heart. I have read Abdul kalam in wings of fire saying " When my professors walked It looks as if Knowledge radiated around them". Iam sorry if Iam wrong I hardly remeber as I studied it 6 years ago. I felt it personally when I met you. Iam very thankful for the almighty to make me meet you.

When I think of doing something for the nation, I always look for someone who can guide me and help me for achieving it. But after seeing you I realized that it can be done by individual itself if he has that passion and zeal to do it. It need not be so big, if every body contributes their part that itself makes a big contribution. Now Iam willing to contribute my part.

My passion is to serve my country by doing my best in what ever field Iam. If I cannot do something great to nation by myself, atleast I will encourage few people to do it by making them understand the importance of it. Iam very much impressed with the way you work, way you think.

Since Iam the elder one for my next generation, not worrying about the past I will make a living that inspires my family, my upcoming brothers and sisters so that they shall feel proud of me and guided in right way.

Since Iam involved with some other issues it will take sometime to get into the action plan. Iam really interested to be a part of our team immediately when i can support myself atleast.

Guide me in the right way while contributing my part our nation. Once again I thank almighty for having shown my guru.

"I am born with potential.
I am born with goodness and trust.
I am born with ideas and dreams.
- I am born with greatness.
- I am born with confidence.
- I am born with wings.
- So, I am not meant for crawling,
- I have wings, I will fly
- I will fly and fly"

101007-Prof.Maya of Vimala College, trichur on DrTPS to Intro

I have stood before this elite group of audience at least hundred times before – may be for a prayer, a song, and a dance or for giving a message or felicitating someone on retirement, but never ever for introducing a resource person so close to me. When I was requested by Sr.Lissy John, to introduce Dr T P Sasikumar, I accepted the duty without the slightest hesitation, for I consider it a pleasant responsibility of all of us to appreciate the good qualities in others, whenever we get a chance. Praise is the nourishment to the soul. If, even the Gods need our praise, what about us humans? Why be stingy when it can bring out goodness in the other and it costs you nothing?

Dr T P Sasikumar is very close to a few of us, familiar to some and totally unfamiliar to the majority of us. Being a multi-faceted personality, I fear that no amount of effort of my part would bring into light all aspects of this vibrant and dynamic personality. Yet let me try my best to give you glimpses of the same.

Ø There is a proverb which says that ‘the one who wants to sing will always find a song’. Yet you imagine a person who left his coveted post of the deputy Director in the cabinet Secretariat of Government of India, for pursuing his dream job of becoming a teacher?

Ø Can you name a person who addressed one day seminar for 3000 participants?

Ø Have you ever heard of a resource person who started a class in the morning and continued it to the next day morning, non-stop?

Ø Can you show me a person who had been the resource person for more than 3000 classes, seminars & workshops in India and abroad over a span of ten years?

Ø Can you think of a person who, though not a teacher by profession claims with due pride to have taught more number of students over the past few years than I have, within the thirty two years of my teaching profession?

Ø Do you think there can exist a person who holds an MSc degree, an MPhil degree, A Doctorate degree, an LLB degree and MBA and an MS degree in Psychotherapy and Counseling and still whose thirst for knowledge could not be quenched?

Ø Have you ever come across a person who even at this age of mid 40s, is a student of Vasthu, Yoga, Ayurveda, Thanthra, Astrology … any subject you name it?

Ø Have you ever seen the odd combination of a poet and a space scientist co-existing in one person? But.. yes, DrTPS, the space scientist has authored two books – Life made Simple and Life of Love.

Ø Have you ever come across a person who replies over a 100 emails daily?

Yes .. I can go on, on and on… my dear friends, now you know the one and probably the only one person on earth who fulfils all the above – Dr T P Sasikumar.

My dear Sr. Lissy John, during my coordinatorship of the career guidance cell over the past six years, I have amassed huge wealth. The wealth of friendship, of love, of affection, of strong bond and lasting relationship with many and Dr T P Sasikumar bears a testimony on the same.

Dear friends, the arts and science colleges are facing insurmountable challenges, which they had never experienced before. Quality of the students seeking admission to these colleges has deteriorated in the near future. Science streams are the worst hit due to the preference for professional courses. Universities do not exist for providing jobs to teachers; managements cannot be expected to retain us, if students do not join the courses. If you have only pea nuts to offer, you can attract only monkeys. To attract lions, you have to offer meat, nothing less. It is high time to demolish the out dated curriculum, methodology and courses. No doubt, earning a livelihood is also is an aim of education. Are we producing the right type of employable graduates with good communication skills, interpersonal skills and technical skills and students with qualities like punctuality, reliability, commitment, pleasing manners and high EQ? Reduction in the number of students seeking admission to conventional BA, BSc, BCom degree courses gives us a warning signal. A smoke is sufficient indicator of fire. It is time to change or else we will perish.

Let us take lessons from eagles. The eagle has the longest life span among birds – of 70 years. When it gets about 40 years, its long and flexible talons cannot grab its prey. Its sharp beak becomes bent. Its heavy wings, due to the thick feathers, stick to its chest make flying difficult. It has two options – die or go through a painful process of change, which lasts about five months. The eagle files to the mountain top and knocks its beak against a rock till it is plucked out. It has to wait till new one grows. Then it plucks out its talons. After they grow back, it starts plucking old aged feathers. When they grow, the eagle takes its flight of rebirth. Afterwards it can live for another 30 years of healthy life.

A Buddhist proverb runs like this “If a lettuce will not grow, do not blame the lettuce, the fault lies with us for not having nourished the seed properly”. I think it is relevant to all of us, teachers to assume the responsibility of modifying our teaching methodology so that learning becomes a pleasant and enjoyable process for all the students. Dr T P Sasikumar with his ocean of knowledge and years of experience will help us in this regard with his seminar on Effective teaching.

My dear friends, today, we reserve our role from teachers to students. Students fall into four main groups – the lock type – who do not allow any new idea to enter the brain, the revenge type – who challenges the teachers’ ability to influence him, by resistance until convinced, the picnic type – who come to the class with the same mind set of going for a picnic – to enjoy and finally the open type – who are willing to accept any good thing who ever may be the giver. Let us be of the forth and the best, who bring out the best in the teacher. For, we have a wonderful teacher today.

Sasi, a good teacher teaches from his heart not from his books. He brings out the best in the students, inspires the students, he has two qualities – love and commitment, love towards the subject and students and commitment to his profession. I have observed all these qualities of a great teacher in you. As you conquer the heights of achievements, may god bless you with adorable qualities of humility, spirit of self-less service and untiring enthusiasm to march forward.

A day spent with a scholar is equal to having read 100 books. A person who spends a day without learning is said to have lived a life of an animal, for the ability to acquire knowledge and apply it in life distinguishes a human being from an animal. How can I forget to express my thanks to you? I once heard a speaker saying “I would thank you from the bottom of my heart. But for you my heart has no bottom”. Let me too repeat the same to you. May God bless you all. Have a wonderful day. Ellavarkkum orikkal kooti nandi, Namaskaram.
